Close fight.

Boxing Purist's picture

Godoy certainly did better than was expected of him, and really did well in the first 4 rounds. Once Joe figured out his timing, he started catching Arturo with some amazing shots on the way in including some lethal uppercuts and hooks that I could not believe did not at least floor the overachieving challenger. Session 9 especially was a brutal round for Godoy as Louis really teed off on the challenger with so astounding powershots, Louis for his part neglected the body with his normal vicious attack again in this defense. Than could have been the difference in a stoppage and decision, or even a splite decision and unanimous decision. I saw this contest as a significantly clear 10 sessions Louis, 5 Godoy, even still with the wide victory it was still a very evtertaining and competitive affair that should have had very little controversey unless it was over the official allowing Godoy to lead with, even spear Louid with the top of his head the whole contest without so much as a serious warning.
